Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen May-22-15
28 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

I open with e4 as white and respond to e4 with e5, and d4 with d5.

Favorite players are Magnus Carlsen and Hou Yifan.

dumbgai: Well there was a time around 13-14 years ago (when Naka was still an IM or low-level GM) when something like 9 of the top 10 players in the USA were all former Soviet players (Seirawan being the exception). Shabalov, Kaidanov, Gulko, Yermolinsky, Ivanov, and those guys.

dumbgai: Geez, losing twice with the white pieces to IMs at the Nakhchivan Open.
   Apr-29-15 Lenderman vs Ivanchuk, 2015
dumbgai: Ivanchuk has always been that type of brilliant but inconsistent player. He has many wins against Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand, Topalov, etc. but also his share of losses against second-tier players.

dumbgai: Nice win against Ivanchuk: Lenderman vs Ivanchuk, 2015
   Apr-29-15 FIDE World Team Championship (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: <AsosLight> Not sure what you mean, 3 of the 5 players on the American team weren't born here. Lenderman moved here as a kid, but Akobian and Onischuk moved here when they were adults.

dumbgai: 2717.5 after world teams.
   Apr-27-15 S Shankland vs Leko, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Hard to blame Leko, I mean look at what happened the last time he tried to press for a win against Shankland: Leko vs S Shankland, 2011
   Apr-24-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: Yeah, when's the last time Carlsen had a minus score in a classical tournament?
   Apr-24-15 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: I'm guessing that losing to Caruana at last year's Sinquefield Cup pissed off Carlsen. He's been thrashing him in their encounters since then.
   Apr-24-15 Wei Yi vs M Ezat, 2015
dumbgai: 13...Rc8, however, is a bad move.
